TRURO - Kyle Morrison continued his red-hot play and the Truro Bearcats cruised to a pair of lopsided victories during the weekend in the Maritime Junior Hockey League.
Morrison scored two goals and assisted on another as the Bearcats dumped the Miramichi Timberwolves 7-2 Sunday, a day after the six-foot, 190-pound forward recorded three assists in a 7-0 pasting of the Metro Shipbuilders.
Morrison leads the league in scoring with 79 points (31 goals, 48 assists) - six ahead of Summerside's Danny Chiasson.
The wins also pull the Bearcats to within two points of the EastLink Division-leading Yarmouth Mariners entering the final two weeks of the regular season.
Sunday, the Bearcats led 2-1 after the first period and 4-1 after 40 minutes. They blew the game open with two goals in just over a minute to start the third.
